RESEARCH UPDATE: 5.1.13
Dr. Michael Jordan, one of the primary HLH researchers at Cincinnati Children's, developed the perforin-deficient animal model that is helping advance the study of better treatmens for HLH. It was a pleasure meeting him last year when we made our reseach donation. I was so thrilled to receive a copy of Research Horizons, Cincinnati Children's Research Foundation's publication to showcase the researchers and their work! Please take a moment to see what's going on with HLH research and to see what the experts are saying. "For patients that have no perforin function, there is no way to fix it apart from a bone marrow transplant, which has significant risks. If this is successful, we could fix the perforin deficiency with gene therapy, replacing it in their own cells." - Michael Jordan, M.D.
